Valiant Comic's Shadowman Movie Gets House Party Director

Marvel Cinematic Universe, you say? DC Extended Universe on your mind? Well, Valiant Entertainment is trying very hard to make sure that in the next few years the Valiant cinematic universe is just as much a part of the pop culture conversation. The latest step they have taken is hiring director Reginald Hudlin to helm their in-the-works movie adaptation of their cult favorite comic Shadowman.

As reported by Comicbook.com, Valiant is moving ahead with Shadowman in-house before taking the project out to studios. Bringing on Reginald Hudlin is a big step in that process. If you don't know the name, you're probably not alone. Hudlin has primarily been known as a TV director, but his movie Marshall is coming out later this year. And back in the early 90s, he did direct a little cult movie called House Party with iconic rappers Kid 'n Play. He also directed Eddie Murphy in Boomerang,

Hey NYC! 25th Anniversary Screening of 'House Party' Followed by Discussion w/ Cast & Crew, Next Week!

It's been a long 25 years since "House Party" opened in theaters across the country, helping to usher in what would become a 1990s "new wave" in black cinema - one that I think many of us who were around at the time (I was still in high school then), remember quite fondly. The movie, starring the then popular rap group Kid 'n Play (Christopher “Kid” Reid and Christopher “Play” Martin), and written and directed by Reginald Hudlin, went on to gross over $26 million at the box office (or around $50 million in today's dollars). It spawned 2 sequels which didn't quite capture the magic and thrill of the first one, and subsequently each (numbers 2 and 3, released in 1991 and...

Review: 'Community' - 'Basic Rv Repair and Palmistry': Flashback fever

Review: 'Community' - 'Basic Rv Repair and Palmistry': Flashback fever
A quick review of this week's "Community" coming up just as soon as I wonder what's wrong with me if that's hot... Don't have much to say about "Basic Rv Repair and Palmistry" beyond noting how right Abed was when he admitted there wasn't much story here and he became too focused on the Christopher Nolan flashback gimmick of it as a result. That's the episode in a nutshell: a couple of funny moments (Jeff's reaction to Britta in the giant hand, Abed and the Dean doing the Kid 'N Play dance, Space Elder Britta being just as much of a spaz as present-day Britta) in an episode where there was no real there there, even with Abed delivering the Jeff Winger speech about the meaning of the hand, and even with the vague allusions to the "4 Days Out" episode of "Breaking Bad." That said... that final sequence with Matt Besser

Kim Jong Un Looks Like He's Channeling Will Smith with Crazy New Haircut
Kim Jong Un is shaking up his style, and we think we know who inspired his new hairdo. The supreme leader of North Korea became the talk of the Internet when he displayed a fuller, flatter and taller hairstyle during a politburo meeting in Pyongyang on Wednesday. Like most things involving the dictator, the circumstances surrounding the bold new look remain a mystery, but we couldn't help but notice that it looks oddly similar to the "flat top" haircut that was popularized in the '90s by stars like Will Smith and Kid from Kid 'n Play.

Britain's Got Talent star Leondre: 'I don't hate the bullies'

Britain's Got Talent star Leondre Devries has suggested that his experience of bullying made him stronger.

The 13-year-old - who won over the judges with 15-year-old Charlie Lenehan as duo Bars and Melody - rapped about his experience of cruel treatment during his audition.

"I don't hate the bullies," he told Digital Spy today. "The bullies must have had a hard time for them to take it out on people who are not as strong and not the tallest either! I can't say I'm tall!

"I just feel like it has been an experience. What my mother always says to me is, 'What doesn't kill you makes you stronger'. I just feel like if I hadn't experienced that, I wouldn't be the person I am today."

The duo, who met in September, agreed that doing the competition "wouldn't be the same" without each other, as Devries explained: "As soon as

From The Matrix to Rudy: Rating the Super Bowl Ads’ Nostalgia Bait
The cliché of watching the Super Bowl just for the ads felt especially true last night, when the game itself was as close as if an actual seahawk and a bronco were competing in a flying contest. As usual, a recurring theme was nostalgia, trotting out a celebrity or a character from a past era in the hopes that millions of people watching will think, Ha-ha, I recognize that person! Here's my money. Here's who popped up — from Arnold Schwarzenegger to the Full House bros to the California Raisins — and how their reappearance made the viewer feel. Commercial: RadioShack Callback: Hulk Hogan, CHiPs' Ponch, Kid N' Play, Twisted Sister's Dee Snider, Mary Lou Retton, Alf, Cliff from Cheers, the California Raisins, and the rest of the eighties Concept: Eighties mainstays destroy a dated RadioShack, allowing for the new RadioShack to rise from the ashes, like a phoenix wearing

Celebrating Every '80s Reference in That RadioShack Super Bowl Commercial
The Super Bowl doubled as throwback Sunday for RadioShack, with the brand unveiling a hilarious new ad that pays tribute to the most beloved celebrities from '80s pop culture. From Hulk Hogan to Chucky, the '80s superstars invade and ransack a typical RadioShack retail outlet (the rampage meant to assure customers that the chain will no longer be stuck in the past).

At only 60 seconds, the ad was an overload of nostalgic randomness; here's a breakdown of every '80s reference we spotted, in roughly the order of appearance:
